Straight off of the release of Phasmid's full-length 2xCD, "Her Friend The Blue Star" (Skylab Operations), Alabama civil rights lawyer and abstract electronic musician Kell Simon brings us a new ep featuring 2 older tracks and 1 new demo track from his upcoming full-length album, coming in late 2003.
The title track, "Lakefront Beats" and "On A Rainy River" take us back in time to earlier Phasmid experiments of a more abstract nature. Where, his newest demo track, currently untitled, shows us just one of the directions Phasmid will be taking with his upcoming full-length. An homage to past influences, "Untitled" takes on a trip through early 90's UK shoegaze, bringing it up to speed by blending in a lovely array of electronic melodies and pads. Untitled is a track just screaming out for the right vocal pattern, with the appropriate British accent of course.
